No. 122

122 EAST 19TH STREET
Architect: unknown; alteration, Thain & Thain
c.1853; alteration, 1908

The history of this Italianate rowhouse reflects the change that occurred on Irving Place as it evolved from a residential street tot a street mixed rexidential/commercial character. The house, which had its facade facing onto East 19th Street (now painted red), is a typical Italianate brownstone, with original wooden window sash and cornice intact. the Irving Place elevation is brick with modest brownstone trim. In 1908, the architectural firm of Thain & Thain was commissioned to remove the basement and first-floor walls, move the entrance to Irving Place, and build a two-story stroefront with cast-ron columns, steel girders, and glass show windows. This 1908 alteration appears to have survived largely intact.
